Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta will today, Wednesday, 1 December 2021, hold a press conference at which he is expected to address some thorny issues raised by the Minority Caucus and the citizenry concerning the 2022 budget statement.

The press conference will take place at 3 pm at the auditorium of the Ministry of Information.

Parliament, on Tuesday, 30 November 2021, passed the 2022 budget.

The Minority side of the house was, however, totally empty. 

The one-sided legislature, made up of the Majority Caucus, passed the budget.

Before the budget was passed, the First Deputy Speaker said the earlier rejection of the budget on Friday, 26 November 2021 was null and void because parliament did not have more than half of its members during the vote on the budget.

He noted that 137 members were not enough to make a decision on the budget, according to law
